Professor William T. McGrath authored monthly column:
The case to which I refer is GeorgiaPacific Consumer Products LP v. KimberlyClark Corp. 2011 WL 3200702 (7th Cir., July 28, 2011). The subject matter: toilet paper. Evans began the opinion in characteristic style: “Toilet paper. This case is about toilet paper. Are there many other things most people use every day but think very little about? We doubt it. But then again, only a select few of us work in the rarified air inhabited by toprate intellectual property lawyers who specialize in presenting and defending claims of unfair competition and trademark infringement under the Lanham Act.” I enjoyed the goodnatured jab at intellectual property lawyers.
